Questions about living with Depression

Postby Crissie254 » Wed Mar 19, 2014 11:00 am

Hi everyone! I am new to this forum and have been living with depression for about 15 years - I am taking Effexor XR (generic) but still have days where I'm just feeling bleak. Are there any suggestions you can give as to how I can (in addition to taking my medicine) learn to live a more joyful life? I have a tendency to be very solitary and lonesome - I am divorced and my kids are 20 and 16 (so growing up), which is kind of giving me empty nest syndrome!! I read a lot about changing your attitude, but many days I feel overwhelmed and sad - and I wish I could figure out some way to change the way I think about things. Change my mood, I guess.

I would suggest talking to someone. Or just being on here will help you out greatly. We are all here for one and other.
